1compoled thiat poetry to go out for
teverybody, I did not mean it for
you individually. It has always been
tomy desiro to complose poetry and
even waite son~gs, and Mr. Thompson
has always b. en mny friend, and I
hope lhe will continue to print my let
ters. Now, dear "Dreamer," I hope
you will not get displeased at that,
e, for I did it all through love and
is kindness, which is, indeed, the great
r. est part of our character. I believe
yonr effort to overcome pafssion and
i cnlt ivate kindness nuil not only
Ibrighten our lives hero but will add
yhappiness to our lives beyond. We
.4 never accompllish anything without
e someC elfort on our part. So often weo
ofail to speak a kind word or do a
ekind deed, and in vain would call
.back the past, but the p)ost is deaf to
Ill our reg.rets. The hardest thing is to
e keep cheerful under little worries
o and little heartaches; little things
-are so ofte harder to overcome than

greater than wealth. Without con.
tentment and kindness wisdom is but
a shadow and virtue a name; but I
believe there are times when we all
foul sure that we have become com
plete failures, and are almost ready
to give up the struggle in utter de
slair. :.'bon we'll remember that
every clouid has a siver lining,-and it's
good for us to have the dark side
turned to us for a while so that we
can more fully appreciato the bright.

greatest blessings, although it is hard
for us to realize it.
If you've a dear thought about me,
Which from real affection flow,
Do not wait until I'm dying,
And then begin to let me know.
If you're ever going to love me,
Love me now, while I can know;
Loving words they cost but little,
When for me affection show.
But they make the weak and weary
Stronger, braver for the strife;
Do not count them only trifles,
Journeying up the hills of life.
There are tender hearts around us
Who are thirsting for our love;
Never was a kind word wasted
Makes them crave all else above.

o hour of all hours, the most blest
upon earth,
Blest hour of our dinners; the land
of his birth;
The face of his first love; the bills
that he owes;
The twaddle of friends and venom of
The sermon he heard when to church
he last went:
The money he borrowed, the money
he spent.
All of these things a man, I believe,
way forget,
And not be the worse for forgetting,
but yet
Never, never, oh, never! earth's luck.
iest sinner
Hath unpunished forgotten the hour
of his dinner!
Indigestionm, that conscience of every
bad stomach,
Shall relentlessly gnaw and pursue
him with omie ache
Or some pain; and trouble, remorse
less, his best ease,
As the Furies once troubled the sleep
of Orestes.
We may live without poetry, music
and art;
We may live wvithout conscience, and
live without beart;
We may live without friends; we may
live without books;
Hlut oivillzed man cannot live wvithout
IHe may live without hooks--what is

HeI may live without hope --what Is
hope buIt deceiving?
He may live without love-what is

But where is the man that can live
